A few months ago I had a period of far-better-than-normal running ability, and got really excited. All of a sudden I was running further distances relatively symptom free. Unfortunately that has tapered off now, but I'm still trying to push myself to run. I used to get symptoms when I ran, but now I get more bothered by them afterwards, whilst feeling OK when actually running. For the rest of the day after running I'll have a really tight chest and feel very tired, but I don't cough (which is normally a big symptom). Ventolin doesn't help all that much - I'll still have symptoms for the rest of the day.
The enthusiasm that my weird running spurt inspired me with is fading fast, because every time I go running the rest of the day is pretty much a write off. Oddly enough, before my running spurt, my bigger problem was symptoms during exercise, symptoms after didn't bother me as much as they do now.
I'm really rubbish at running - my jogging pace is barely above my walking pace, so I can't really slow down!!
Anyone got any advice? I'd really like to enjoy it, and see some improvement (which apart from the weird spurt, I've never ever seen, despite 6 years of regular jogs!)
